Snooze: An AM Eatery is known for its delectable dishes, often twists on old favorites. From their Breakfast Pot Pie to their Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes, you’re in for a treat. At locations in Austin and Houston, you can find yummies like Chilaquiles Benedict (for a splurge) or the Quinoa Breakfast Bowl (for eating healthy). We also love their orange coffee mugs, fun music and laid-back servers.

But Snooze is about more than great food to kick off your day. Snooze tries to give back to the communities they are in through service and in-kind donations. You can find them handing out pancakes, tending gardens, and cleaning beaches — any local cause that focuses on education and sustainability. Some of their community partners include: Meals on Wheels, Texas 4000 for Cancer, HAAM and Slow Food USA.

Snooze not only stands by the communities it’s a part of, but also the planet. “We’re working to help create a better world for future generations,” reads their sustainability statement. The dining chain does this by using responsible materials, composting, recycling, and more. Some of their purveyors include: 44 Farms Beef in Cameron, Flat Track Cold Brewed Coffee in Austin, Mill-King Creamery in McGregor, and Slow Dough Baking Co. in Houston.

But going green doesn’t stop at Snooze; they’ve taken it a step further. 12 Months of Green is an education program where diners, or as they call them, “snoozers,” can learn about one of the aspects of being green each month. From energy to landfill, the 12 Months of Green covers it all.
